Countdown to GRAPEMO! :)

Reminder: GRAPEMO begins on Monday Feb. 1st. Those of you who participated last year will remember that you only need 2 things:

1.      Something to work on

2.      A PERSONAL WRITING GOAL (PWG)

(And motivation—which you have!)

 

Your PWG can be whatever you choose. Most people like to stick with the word counts, whether, like NaNo, it’s another 50k in 30 days. Or 20k. Or even 1k. If your goal is to write 100 words of sheer perfection by the end of February, then knock yourself out. :) The main thing is to pick a Goal and stick with it!

 

You can write something new or work on your current WIPs

You can do so many words/pages/chapters of revisions or get some serious editing done.

If you need a synopsis or an outline—go for it!

If you’re an illustrator, grab the paints or the pastels or the charcoal or the camera.

 

Anyone can play. You don't need to belong to LJ. If you’re interested, please let me know who you are and what your PWG is (this will be posted) in a private message here on LJ or in an e-ail to sassenach43 at aol dot com. You can reply to this post as well, but future updates need to be PMed or e-mailed

 

I’d like WEEKLY UPDATES on your progress, which I’ll also post on this blog. Updates need to be e-mailed or PMed to me (not send via comments, too hard too keep track of) over the weekends (Sunday nights at the latest) so I can post them in a timely manner.

Everyone's also welcome to send a few lines (up to 300 words or so) for me to post on a collective Teaser Tuesday(s). These need to be in by Monday night, again so I can get them up in time.

Are you psyched? Are you psyched?

Here is a list of Grapenuts so far. If you'd like to be added, let me know. Any questions, ask away!

Yeah, I miss you guys! Bit every time I think about blogging or reading blogs, it's when i'm in the middle of revising. GAH! (will soon rectify this)

Oooh... I'm supposed to have my revision letter by the end of this month which would put me in great shape to be added to Grapemo. And while I have until March 15th to finish, I'd ideally like to have the first pass at them done by March 1st, so I can then spend two weeks obsessingpolishing.

Besides, it means I get to see mah peeps again! I feel as if I've been down the rabbit hole forEVER!

Re: Count Khyr in
Yeah, forget the french toast...or, uh, can we say DOUBLE PORTION OF BLUEBERRY CREPES? Can you believe I ATE that? (I can)

Sooo glad you're doing this, Pammie!

Are you sure you didn't mean to type 'I'm psychotic!' at the end of your post? ;-)

How about I set a small goal since I have such a full plate right now. Something like 100 words a day? Better than nothing, right?

Questions
IF I don't have to be previously published, since I'm brand new to the scene, I think this is a great way to work and learn, so I'd like to join, if it's not too late. If I do have to wait, please let me know.

I don't know what PM means, so guess I'll be emailing this stuff. So where do I send the emails?

My name here will be Dee Shoe, my favorite nickname, if I may start late.
My PWG is to get Chapter 1 as close to perfection as possible. In order to accomplish that, I'm praying that you guys critique, etc., sort of like a Writers Group.

Speaking of which, how do I find such groups?

Thanks for your patience and for your responses.

Re Questions
Um, the PWG would be by March 1st.
How do I get my pic next to my name on ANYTHING on the I-net? I may be old, but I'm still eager to learn.
